Vipers SC assistant Coach Edward Golola admitted his side made many defensive errors in the 2-1 loss to Police at Namboole on Saturday.
Milton Karisa put the visitors in the lead nine minutes after the break but the hosts reacted with Hood Kaweesa bagging a brace to condemn the venoms to their first defeat of the season.
“I think we made so many mistakes especially in the second half,” admitted Golola in a post-match presser. “We controlled the game well in the first half and after taking a lead early in the second, the boys relaxed thinking they had won the game,” he added.
Then defensively, we made many errors and you could see we failed to balance as we were attracted to same positions. Our movement in defence was also poor.
The soft spoken tactician who was at the helm as the team won their only two league titles has however promised a better outing come next Wednesday when they host struggling Soana at Kitende.
But as coaches, we are going to the drawing board and rectify the problems before we go into our next game on Wednesday.
After this loss, we have to tell the boys this isn’t the end and the difference will be visible on Wednesday.
Vipers dropped to second on the log with 10 points, same as new log leaders Police who have a superior goal difference.
